2011-03-25docs: fix dev_debug() braino in dynamic-debug-howto.txtJonathan Corbet1-2/+2
While looking at dynamic-debug-howto.txt, I noticed that it references dev_debug() (which doesn't exist) instead of dev_dbg() (which does exist). I'm lazy, so I choose to fix the document rather than changing every dev_dbg() call. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>

Add flags that allow the user to specify via debugfs whether or not the module name, function name, line number and/or thread ID have to be included in the printed message.

2010-10-22Dynamic Debug: Introduce ddebug_query= boot parameterThomas Renninger1-1/+21
Dynamic debug lacks the ability to enable debug messages at boot time. One could patch initramfs or service startup scripts to write to /sys/../dynamic_debug/control, but this sucks. This patch makes it possible to pass a query in the same format one can write to /sys/../dynamic_debug/control via boot param. When dynamic debug gets initialized, this query will automatically be applied.

2009-03-24Dynamic debug: allow simple quoting of wordsGreg Banks1-6/+14
Allow simple quoting of words in the dynamic debug control language. This allows more natural specification when using the control language to match against printk formats, e.g #echo -n 'format "Setting node for non-present cpu" +p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control instead of #echo -n 'format Setting\040node\040for\040non-present\040cpu +p' > /mnt/debugfs/dynamic_debug/control Adjust the dynamic debug documention to describe that and provide a new example. Adjust the existing examples in the documentation to reflect the current whitespace escaping behaviour when reading the control file. Fix some minor documentation trailing whitespace.
